Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards and witches. They soon encounter an array of old and new beasts as they clash with Grindelwald's growing legion of followers.
The film was first set for a November 12, 2021 release, but the pandemic saw the start of production delayed. After Depp's resignation, the movie was pushed back to July 2022.
Johnny Depp will not be reprising his role as Grindelwald after he was asked to resign from the role by Warner Bros. Depp had shot one scene as Grindelwald for the third movie, but we don't know if this will end up in the movie or not.
Along with the title and new release date, we got our first official synopsis for the third movie in December 2021, and it spells danger and trouble ahead for Newt, Dumbledore and more.
